Kate Beckinsale takes beauty cues from her mother, who’s never had cosmetic surgery.
Kate Beckinsale has had it with plastic surgery speculation.
The actress, 47, set the record straight on Sunday, sharing that she gets “pissed off” when people assume she’s gone under the knife.
“I haven’t had any [work done],” she told The Sunday Times. “I’m not against people having it. [But] I do get pissed off. It’s sort of a given that I’ve had it, which I just literally haven’t.”
The “Underworld” actress inherited her filler-free philosophy from her mom, who is so “suspicious” of cosmetic treatments she “wouldn’t even get a facial.”
“I’m frightened of paralyzing my face. My mum’s voice is in my head, very loud, at all times,” the actress explained, adding that she’s never been tempted to try injections, either.
“I know if I did do Botox, I’d be the one that would get the droopy eye and my mum would go, ‘I f—king told you! See? You should never do that.’”
It seems good genes are partially to thank for Beckinsale’s ageless beauty, as she gushed about her mother, Judy Leo, saying the 76-year-old still “looks f—king radiant and amazing.”
Although the star has stayed above pressure to get plastic surgery, she admitted that aging in the public eye comes with its challenges.
“I think, when you start out, people perceive you as attractive it’s helpful at first. If people start thinking that’s your main thing, I don’t think that’s helpful to anyone, least of all you,” she told the outlet, adding that all women – not just Hollywood superstars – are subject to constantly shifting beauty standards.
“I think women are damned anyway,” she added. “You’re seen as too young, you’re too old. Where is the f—king sweet spot for women? At some point you just have to go, b—tch — this is me.’”
It’s not the first time the star has been vocal about embracing her age, as she once clapped back at a troll that said she was “too old” to pose in a bikini.
She certainly hasn’t slowed down her sexy social media posts since then, as she hit the beach with her dogs on Sunday, showing off her figure with a bikini-clad Instagram post.
